Our second day in Rome and first full day was definitely filled with amazing sites and experiences! Our day began early as we wanted to ensure that we could figure out the metro system in order to get to our Colosseum tour on time. We arrived earlier than anticipated and enjoyed our first few sights of the amazing structure.
Afterward we were both feeling hungry for breakfast and stopped at a café.
Following the breakfast break, we made our way to the Roman Forum which essentially is this huge area that they have blocked off to protect ancient Roman buildings and columns that are still standing today!
After we walked through the Vittoriano.
We eventually stopped at a small café for a little bit of rest and some appetizers. We enjoyed bruschetta and sardines with mozzarella and prosciutto. Afterwards we ate at our first Italian dinner restaurant (and the first time Mom and I could enjoy a glass of wine in public together!).
Afterwards we ran into some local street art, the Trevi Fountain and stopped for gelato before getting on the metro line home.
Overall, it was a successful second day here in Rome! We are both enjoying ourselves very much and having a great time together!
Worry less and smile more.
